Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire county councils and three private sector companies have joined already
Mobile technology research and development company, InterDigital, has introduced oneTransport open data marketplace as a commercial service in the UK.
The commercial service is based on the two-year oneTransport project, which brought together more than 300 different datasets and coordinated 11 public and private partners’ activities.
The commercial service features an expanding ecosystem that includes Northamptonshire County Council, Oxfordshire County Council, Arup, WorldSensing and Traak Systems.
According to InterDigital, the marketplace makes real-time data from a myriad of closed, siloed systems available through an open, standards-based system with data licenses, enabling the creation of new data-driven digital transport solutions.
Public and private sector organisations across different sectors use the oneTransport data marketplace to publish, distribute and consume both real-time and historical data with each other to reveal insights and create new intelligent transport services that deliver:
“We hold the responsibility of providing the best and most efficient citizen-centric transport services for people in our region, while sensibly managing public spend,” said Ian Achurch, head of development, infrastructure and funding at Northamptonshire County Council.
“oneTransport data marketplace enables efficient real-time sharing of our transport data with neighbouring regions and the wider private sector, unlocking investment in services that benefit our citizens and travellers through our region without straining our already stretched budgets.”
The oneTransport data marketplace operates on the Chordant platform, a standardised cloud-based system built for real-time data, supported by a commercial framework that makes open data sharing simple for any organisation. The marketplace provides numerous service features including:
“Digital transport is a key objective in unlocking economic growth. In order to unlock this true value, transport operators, local authorities, transport agencies, and service providers will need to work together,” added Jim Nolan, executive vice president, Chordant, at InterDigital.
“The oneTransport data marketplace enables data to be shared within a trusted ecosystem, unlocking innovation, enabling new intelligent mobility services and ultimately advancing economic growth.”
At Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona, InterDigital will demonstrate how the oneTransport data marketplace enables the monetisation of real-time smart city and intelligent mobility data streams.
